Deprecated Chrome policies

Applies to managed Chrome Browsers and Chrome devices.

For administrators who manage Chrome Browser or Chrome devices for a business or school.

You can use Chrome policies to control how your users experience Chrome Browser and devices running Chrome OS.

For full descriptions of Chrome policies, including the deprecated ones, see the Policy List.

Considerations

  • Use the same policy-management tools to unset deprecated or removed policies that you used to set them.
  • Unset policies that you’re no longer using.

Deprecated policies

New releases of Chrome introduce new policies and sometimes deprecate old ones. Avoid using deprecated policies because they will be removed in future releases. You might be able to use a better alternative policy.

Deprecated policies remain visible in the Policy List. To display them, select the Include deprecated polices box. See Search for deprecated policies.

Removed policies

Sometimes, policies are removed from Chrome because they're no longer useful. Avoid setting removed policies—they can cause Chrome Browser errors. 

Removed policies don't appear in Policy List searches.

Search for deprecated policies

Use chrome://policy

On a managed device, browse to chrome://policy
All applied policies, including deprecated or unknown (removed), are listed. For more information, see View a device's current Chrome policies.

Use the Policy List

  1. Open the Chrome Policy List.
  2. On the left:
    1. (Optional) From the release list, select the release you want to search in.
    2. Select the Include deprecated policies box.
    3. Enter the policy name in the search field.

Deprecated policies include (deprecated) in red text immediately after the policy name
